The German forces in Ger-

an official statement issued
tonight, the German attacks
were beaten off the attacking
personal command of Colo

past of Kilim:\iindesince May
5. An attack at the latter
place, preceded by a heavy
bombardment was attempted
during tlie night of May 910
and was driven off with sev
ere losses.
The enemy persisted in his
offensive during the 10th and
11 Ih, and after sunset on the
latter day made a determined
effort against the British left
flank, which was repulsed.
During the 12th there were
no enemy attacks. Our losses
were inconsiderable.
A report received, but not
vet confirmed, is that Bel
gian forces in Ruanda have
penetrated to Kigali (about
fifty miles from the border)
after encountering slight op
